It might be a great way to find your new best friend!

Craigslist

In January, actress Kim Basinger put Craigslist on the spot by demanding the platform ban all posts regarding animals. Through various loopholes, the website has been used to sell and trade animals for numerous unethical purposes such as dog fighting and puppy mill activity. To understand more about this underground market, we interviewed Kelly Reeves, founder of Southern California rescue Paw Prints in the Sand. From the Craigslist loophole to the efforts being made to stop it, here’s what you need to know and how you can help.

While her rescue focuses on pulling animals from municipal shelters, Reeves explained that there are Facebook groups solely dedicated to scouting and saving animals posted on Craigslist. She also noted that similar sleuthing goes on in Facebook Marketplace where “people will post a crate for sale when they are really selling puppies.” (Source:vegnews.com)

Craigslist - a forum for people to post online classified ads. Today, Craigslist is where a lot of people find their next best friend, a family member, or even a job.

I know my last blog post was about my reaction at seeing a “Free Kittens” sign, and the dangers of offering pets for free. This post probably seems like overkill if you’ve been paying attention; but a little switch went off in my brain last week. I became so consumed by the thought that people need to be educated about this issue, that I made a commitment to myself, and I’d like to challenge you to do the same.
